Hi.
Is there a way to automatic upload of a file to add to an item I've already created? (ie use external program to upload)

We have a community radio (internet based) and are give a .wav file recorded by journalists, and local artists.

We have an in-house specialist computer program which with one-click takes the file, converts it to .mp3, adds ID3 tags, adds it to our database, converts it to text, and creates a webpage for it and (up to now) uploads the mp3 to a server (so the non-technical staff do not have to waste their time doing what a computer can do). Also it means technical staff can concentrate on more taxing issues than upload a file.

We would like to use the Internet Archive for this as it is the best or proper place for it for archiving purposes, but... what technical methods exist, however complex, for automating the process of getting that mp3 file from an inhouse computer to a published and accessible version on Internet Archive?

There were some methods floating around (using php) to upload uears ago when the FTP was all working well.

yes there is -- i can try to put you in touch w/ an engineer here who can point you to S3. you'd want something like curl (ideally) or wget on a unix-like cmd-line if that's possible. then it's relatively straightforward from there.

we can proceed if that sounds good/plausible and you reply!
